  1. It is so fine! Rabbit do you think or something better than that?
  2. I think this is Fratelli Fanciullacci Italy, 1960s.
  3. Puff and all! That's fantastic and I wish I lived in a time I could use this daily.
  4. Very unusual - I have no idea Lisa but I like it!
  5. Very brave to fire him up - imagine if Reddy blew!!
  6. Glorious!
  7. Exquisite.
  8. I couldn't comment as my jewellery expertise is not enough but I can say they are both beautiful Jean.
  9. Even I can see these are unusual for him. As you say maybe early and before he really developed his own style. Still beautiful and beautifully made.
  10. Fiery. Photos show these beautifully. Isn't it great to have similar but different vases - comparing colours and shapes. Both have their great attributes.
  11. Exceptional find Alan - congratulations. Sad what we did to aboriginal cultures; stealing children from families is unbelievable, just to make them grow up "white".
  12. Cool - and great research!
  13. We don't have rabies in Aus. Quarantine has kept us safe up until now which is why Johnny Depp and wife got in so much trouble when they brought their dogs in privately. Some people don't get it.
  14. Freddie had the most amazing voice. This might interest you Thomas: http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/heres-why-freddie-mercurys-voice-was-so-awesome-according-science
  15. I really love you Reddy.
  16. Love at first sight! Love me Reddy!!!
  17. Style. Design. Maximised.
  18. I can't choose :( - Trifari were masters.
  19. Really love the horse hair vase - so different and beautiful.
  20. Very cool. Well done!
  21. Not generally a fan of steins but I really like this one = horsies!!
  22. I still really love this stuff. Sensual.
  23. I'm worried for June-chan.....what if she likes swords instead?
  24. Looks good. Lovely blue glass, great shape, beautifully finished. The bird design is acid etched. The hummingbird design feels quite contemporary to me and although I can't work out what the mark is...
  25. I'm wondering if it is not Arita ware. They often use the theme of rabbits and waves, from the tale White Rabbit of Inaba. I hope someone here can help but if not I would try one of the japanese cera...
  26. I used to not think much of white enamel and gold brooches...it was probably just because of familiarity. Now I can see how cool they are. These two are particularly well designed. Gold star Ken!
  27. All class. Love the twist.
  28. I'll tell you a secret Ken. I have no carnival glass, and I don't know why because it has a beauty of it's own despite it's lowly beginnings. I must look for a piece like this - I really really lik...
  29. Beautiful vase. Whoever Zephyr was they were excellent glass artists.
  30. Sssssssenssssational sssserpentsssss.
  31. Great link that. I checked my girl and she is a Ndebele ceremonial doll. I am mad with work and theatre sewing at the moment and need to find time to take photos......for my girl and other stuff. S...
  32. I'm comfortable with the attribution Katherine...it probably doesn't meet the Czech glass people's methodology.
  33. Keeps me a bit saner Katherine. Also poorer.....lol
  34. I love this one so much myself Katherine - I look at her daily and feel good. I have talked to a few sources and have seen photos of workers at Mikimoto Island making these for the tourist trade in t...
  35. Ha Katherine! Some people are so impervious that even when they are clearly told something they don't get it. I usually like to have some fun with them by being very dry and sarcastic. "Thanks for al...
  36. Missed your response OGF. Vinnies is St Vincent de Paul, a Catholic charity here in Aus that has many charity shops. Australians are well known for their use of diminutives and everyone here knows wh...
  37. Glad you like it Katherine!
  38. Ooooh, great find Alan.
  39. Hi babe....missed you. I've got one of these; different but same same. They are way funky.
  40. Wonderful. Maybe post it to a Facebook group for info? https://www.facebook.com/groups/185857384957780/
  41. Great work K!
  42. Gotta say, great chairs!
  43. No idea either but they are really nice! They look like pewter and teak to me (whether that's any help).
  44. My guess is Bavarian.
  45. Great post Budek. Yesterday I was at Sydney Motor Sport Park and it was an awesome sight to see 200 mad bike track riders shut it all down and stand silent, heads down, for a minute. Not a peep or m...
  46. She is gorgeous - very flirty.
  47. Beautiful and a worthy owner.
  48. They are just groovy glass.
  49. I like the uncluttered look too Mike even though at home I'm a clutterbug. I recognise some of you pieces but you have had so many I can't remember them all! Glad it's going well and a great idea f...
  50. Genius. Lost.
